My First Crown belonged to Catherine the Great

I have a long history now of Stitching Crowns. Here was my first Crown from 10 years ago. Do you know whose crown it was?

Yes, those of you who guessed Eleanor were right.

There is no known portrait of Eleanor of Aquitaine so I made up both Crown and Eleanor from parts of paintings unrelated to her, such as the one below.
